Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for nexium to work


Avatar n tn Seems like I got rid of pain in one area to only have it shift to another. I know it can take weeks for nexium to work, but anyone have similar symptoms?
1369218 tn?1282427484 Both are widely available USA products, and more open for docs to Rx it. Plus most insurance will cover it. But if you lack insurance it can cost up to $150 a month on the name brands. Luckily there is also a lower cost generic version of Cytomel. Erfa is a Canadian product that is not imported for sale here by continental retail US pharmacys. The Rx is faxed to a Canadian pharmacy, you pay all out of pocket from a credit card, and its shipped here.
Avatar n tn in Tylenol PM. It seemed to work for me and I hope would be better for us than the Traz. I am going to stay on the effexor or some kind of AD though, at least through tx. I do get depressed and feel sorry for myself and all of those other tx. and sx. related problems. There is alot going on on the outside that affects the inside if you know what I mean.
Avatar n tn Nexium is safe to use long-term.....I have used it on and off for about 10 years now. I am going through menopause myself. You also should include life style changes if not being done already.
Avatar n tn Because of other medical problems I am not a candidate to have it redone. So I guess I will just have to settle for Nexium twice a day. It would have been nice if the surgeon would have told me this BEFORE I had it done.
Avatar n tn I don't know anything about the fellow on TV, I just know, that for me, the product does work and is worth what I am paying for it. I have often been to the health food store to price the ingredients. I didn't see the savings in buying the ingredients separately. Besides, why would I want to take 7 or 8 more pills when I am already taking 13 without the FlexProtex. No, I do not work for the company nor do I intend to. I just like them and their product.
Avatar n tn I've been taking Prevacid and/or Nexium for 2 weeks and haven't noticed any changes in the way that I feel. Does it take a while for these medications to work enough for me to notice a difference? I have researched GERD on the internet, and see that some people need long-term drug intervention - especially those, like myself, who have the hernia & LES problem. It says that my symptoms will return if drug therapy is discontinued.
Avatar n tn I hope I don't find out the hard way, because after last year's esophagectomy, there isn't much internal plumbing left for them to take out of me!! I have no idea how to quantify the long-term stomach cancer risk. I assume that long term PPI use is preferable to no treatment and enduring GERD over the long term. Unfortunately, I know what longterm GERD can lead too. The best course is to alter one's lifestyle and diet to control the GERD, if possible.
Avatar m tn What is the difference between Prevacid and Nexium in what it does and how it does it? Long term effects?... Is what I am feeling are effects from the aloe healing my esophagus or the medications?
Avatar n tn Would Aciphex also cause polyps? I had to discontinue my use of Nexium because it stopped working for me. I now take Aciphex and get better results.
Avatar n tn I still experience the same symptoms so it wasn't the gall bladder. I have been on 40 mg of Nexium for about 2 months now and it does seem to allow me to eat what I want-but that's the problem. You don't change your habits and I wonder if things are still continuing to happen inside and are masked by the medicine. Lately, I have been experiencing the lump in my throat, difficulty in swallowing, shortness of breath, coughing, and always clearing my throat.
Avatar n tn I called the doctor's office today to give them an update after taking Nexium for a week. I told them I was no worse but not much better and added the weight loss. The nurse asked me several questions and told me she would talk to the doctor who was on call - I probably would hear back late this afternoon. The issue is they are totally booked for months and unless the doctor concludes it's urgent, you have to wait your turn.
Avatar n tn I did read that lemon juice or any citris juice helps cleanse the liver, so I was planning to try to drink some of that to see how it does (but not very much). Also, I would not try to drink all that olive oil, it sounds like it could be dangerous. I am avoiding any hydrogenated fat, and would recommend you do also (read the labels). I'm only eating chicken or turkey or fish right now (broiled or grilled) and avoid all butter, etc.
Avatar m tn Work with good doctors and they will eventually get you back to good health. It may take a long time (3+ years for me), but it is possible. Also, pulmonary function tests can be a little miss leading. The numbers are based on 'norms'. You may not be close to the norms even healthy. I have the opposite problem. My normal is far above the norm so doctors think I am ok when I am 30% below what is healthy for me. Basically, an FEV 1 of 70 for you may be perfectly healthy.
Avatar n tn Therefore, they all work in the same fashion, and one is chosen over the other based on cost and the side effect profile. It is unlikely, though not impossible for you to have a reaction to Nexium and not to Prilosec because both medications are structurally similar (they're called 'racemic isomers') and therefore have the same side-effect potentiation. Anyway, it would be possible to return to the Prilosec...
Avatar m tn I wouldn't take PPI's with an expectation to cure a problem, but to control it. I'd look for lifestyle, diet or surgical changes to cure it.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had it in for over a year but wanted it removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
Avatar n tn it made my symptoms worse, like hearburn and indigestion and nausea. I continued to take it for a week and have now stopped since I do not see any improvement. I find that my GERD symptoms are worse now..and now my throat continually contracts as if i want to vomit but i do not vomit, i also feel that my stomach lining is inflamed because of burning and pain. I have now switched to 20 mg of LOSEC instead of the nexium. Should I even be taking PPI's at all? Why are my symptoms worse?
213739 tn?1215489609 It's been about 3 months now and since we started weaning and about a month to a month and a half since we've been completely off the Nexium. My question is, how long does it take to get it completely out of your system? He's been very fussy the past couple of days and screamed 3 night ago from 10pm until 2am for NO reason but then slept fine the last 2 nights .
Avatar m tn I still do an excedrin for headaches, but you can't take it long term max. dose without burning up your gut! Geez, what a great place to learn hunh? I just found out about coffee being a trigger, I love the stuff, that's what I drink when everybody else is having toddies, now I have a little more concept of what's causing some cravings. That's probably what made me pick up cigs after 6 month's also! Congratulations on your new life! Way to go.
Avatar n tn Can a functional problem with anything else cause it? No. 2. How long does it take to recover? He suggested that the Dr who performed the endoscopy probably elaborated at "Gastritis" in my case and he only suspects "Non-ulcer functional dyspepsia" (NUD). He talked months, not years. Gastritis can be misdiagnosed as tv monitor set up can make the stomach look inflammed. Very subjective diagnosis in mild cases. 3.
Avatar n tn Had surgery to remove it and thank God it was confined to that area only! Have been on chemo again for a little over a year and am doing well! I know that you are so very worried, and feel that you may have neglected your own health. I can relate - I delayed my surgery because of my Mom's health. The main thing you have to do now is put yourself first and get to the bottom of all your symptoms.
Avatar n tn I took my first does 10 mins ago and although it say's to start taking them first thing in the morning, I just had to try it now, how long do they take to work? Does anyone else suffer the likes of dull pain sometimes in arms and legs? I take it these are associated with the so called 'acid reflux'? Many thanks in advance for your help.
Avatar m tn My acid is at it's worst when I wake up in the morning. If I take 1 pill before Breakfast as my Gastro. recommends, it's not going to last long enough to prevent my nausious acid feeling the next morning, is it? I was diagnosed with a mildly incompetent L.E.S., Minimal GERD and minimal Gastritis. My plan is/was to use Nexium for the 1-3 months that is recommended in order to "heal".
Avatar n tn You may want to take note of what you eat on the occasions you get this lead feeling in your stomach. It could be too fatty of a food for your digestive system to handle. It sounds like it is either something you eat or drink, or else why would you not get it after every meal. Write down what you eat and you might start seeing a pattern on what food does this to you, then you are better able to stay away them or lower you intake. Good Luck and I wish you well.
Avatar n tn and it is helping with my esophogal pain too, even though ive only been taking it like 5 days. I get afraid to take it though...for like 2 hours after i take it i am a nervous wreck...i keep thinking that my heartbeat is too fast, or that i cant catch my breath...but i think these are just psychological symptoms and that the nexium isnt really causing these side effects - I've also been having a problem with anxiety reccently...for about 2 months also...
Avatar n tn My doctor wants me to take this dose until Monday then call to update my gastritis/reflux condition. I don't want to take 2 Nexium or even 1 Nexium for the any length of time. I know people who have been taking Nexium for years - I don't want to be one of them! I've heard alot about DCL and want to try some alternatives but of course, don't want to go thru the discomfort and pain I experienced before the Nexium.
Avatar f tn I was recently prescribed xanax an am afraid to take it because of all the warning labels. What does it do to you? Does it help you with the panicy feeling, or just put you to sleep. Is it anything like atarax?
Avatar m tn Thanks for the replies. I'd really like to try to figure out how to stop the physical effects that the anxiety is causing my stomach, rather than just stopping my self from feeling it. Something about the initial anxiety event is causing my stomach to get totally enflamed/irritated, to the point that it takes months to heal and go back to normal.
Avatar n tn How long until I start to feel better? I am off of work for a week (I planned this to coincide with my vacation). I would have gone into a detox or something but I have no one to take care of my house, etc.
